So with this new deal place standard edition KD's should be hitting the $200 mark any time now. I know he has always vowed to keep his signature sneakers "affordable" but its pretty much a given that the retail value of his sneakers will significantly increase more than they initially would have anyway. I also wonder what kind of precedent does this set for other superstar athletes on Nike's roster when they become apparel brand free agents.

Well said @HeroinSoap. It's no secret Under Armour's bread is buttered on the football side of things and it's football merchandising will be carrying the weight for sometime now. Their equipment tech and performance wear is second to none right now.

This all boils down to a "risk" by Under Armour to push it's basketball branding to another level, one that could possibly rival it's football department. If you guys think this is all about shoes you're are sadly mistaking. It's about tech wear in general, a market that UA has been largely successful in.

Don't really care much for "sneaker legacies" and think they are vastly overrated. I hope Durant makes the best decision for him without factoring in a "sneaker legacy."

Why didn't they just make the Super Fly's Blake's official signature with his namesake, logo and all? Is he not worthy of a signature shoe? I mean dude has even been in the MVP discussion over the last couple of seasons.

To most OG sneaker connoisseurs Kanye has no relevance because we were rocking signature sneakers before we even knew he existed. But he has definitely had an impact the newer generation of "sneakerheads."

Hype sells. Kanye generates hype. So his contributions to Nike, JB and every other sneaker he had garnered hype can't be ignored.

Can't even knock his decision. He'll get a signature line, which I'm sure most players who endorse a shoe company hope for, a lot sooner with Adidas than he would with Nike and Jordan at the moment.

Those are pretty much the only major companies right now in regards to basketball in the states. Even though Under Armour has been trying to make some noise here lately by sponsoring collegiate and high school teams.

Are you sure about that? I could of sworn these were one of the priciest sneakers to release, especially given the hype surrounding the pump movement at the time that Nike was trying to capitalize off of. I've never heard of these being $130 retail ever. As for for J's, of course they weren't $170. They had no reason to be.

The price seems fair enough considering they were about $175 when they first released. Nike will more than likely cut some corners to compensate for the pricing though. I'm not expecting the "pump" technology to be there but it'd be a plus if it were.

Jabari... see what you've gotten yourself into? I'm sure JB is going recommend or even require that their spokesmen bust these out on random occassions during the season.

The performance might be top notch though since that seems to be the theme. "The more hideous the sneaker, the greater they perform on the court."
